The National Indigenous Times is a multi-award winning Indigenous affairs news organisation set up by Owen Carriage which first appeared in newspaper form on February 27, 2002, and produces a monthly newspaper which is read by millions of Australians each month across the country.
In 2016, following a period of administration, the publication was purchased by prominent Indigenous businessmen Wayne Bergmann and Clinton Wolf, as well as the late respected journalist, Tony Barrass, who became the newspaper’s editor.
At that time the National Indigenous Times also pivoted to online for the first time, and today has a rapidly growing digital reach across Australia and worldwide through nit.com.au and social media channels.
NIT is now 100 per cent owned by Mr Bergmann, who serves as Executive Chairman, and Mr Wolf, the company’s Managing Director, and produces a monthly national newspaper.
Core editorial focuses for the NIT include Indigenous business, justice for Stolen Generations survivors, fashion and the arts, sport, Voice, Treaty and Truth, and deaths in custody.
NIT's Editor is Giovanni Torre, and the publication employs journalists and engages contributors in every Australian state and territory.
The NIT is published on the last Tuesday of the month as an insert in The West Australian, and on the last Wednesday of the month in the NT News, Daily Telegraph, Courier Mail, Herald Sun, The Advertiser & The Mercury.
